One of the most frequently asked questions we help answer is, “How many baby clothes do I need?”. If you’re a new parent, it’s easy to go overboard and buy baby outfits that you later find out are unusable or impractical. Why? Because in the first year, your little one does a lot of growing, especially in the first three months. Generally, you won’t know what size your baby will be until they’re born and you won’t know how they’ll grow.
As a new parent, you won’t want to spend hours doing laundry, so it’s best to have the right balance of clothing from the start. Below, our experts share their baby clothing knowledge and recommend everything you’ll need for the first crucial months of your baby’s life.
Baby Clothing Checklist for Devon Families
Footies, gowns, swaddles, sleep sacks, onesies, what’s the difference? In today’s world, there’s an endless supply of baby clothing available for purchase, and the choices may leave you confused or even stressed out. The best way to build a baby’s wardrobe collection is to consider a few essential things:
Think about laundry - Do you have an in-home washer and dryer? How often do you do your laundry now? These are both critical things to consider and can make a big difference in how many items of baby clothing you’ll need or want on hand.
What about baby clothes sizes - Figuring out sizing can be tricky because it’s tough to anticipate how big your baby will be at birth. It’s a great idea to register for baby clothes in several sizes because most newborns grow out of their clothing quickly. It’s also a smart move to mix in clothes from several different brands, so you’ll have style and material options.
Stay organized - Before and after the baby arrives, keep everything It’s easy to misplace or lose little newborn clothing, so try to organize your baby’s wardrobe by size, using draw dividers, closet dividers, and infant plus child-sized hangers.
Consider the season - Are you having a child in the winter? Or will your new baby be here during the summertime? Consider the season you will give birth and choose weather-specific clothes to accommodate the temperature.
As a guideline, we recommend the following clothing items to prepare for the arrival of a new baby: short sleeve bodysuits, long-sleeve footies, convertible gowns, hats, swaddles, socks, bibs, sweaters or hoodies, sleep sacks, a stroller blanket, bathing suits for a summer baby, a snowsuit for a winter baby, soft-soled shoes, and an outfit to come home from the hospital in.
